These books are fun, kind of like reading an episode instead of watching one. This time Buffy must battle an evil tarot deck threatening to take over her friends and perhaps the universe.

Can Tarot really end the world?!

Buffy has to wind up saving all her friends and the entire Universe from an Evil Goddess named Kali who possesses a young artist named Justine who does Tarot readings and when she does them the Deck of cards empowers the person's mind and puts their Essences and Emotional thoughts and makes them trapped in a Tarot painting. The goal for the Tarot paintings is to speed up the process of ending the Universe. If Justine can do that, then the world will end and she w

This was a fun entry in the Buffy books series. I won't be spoiling anything by letting you know that the title, Doomsday Deck" comes from the fact that the story centers on Tarrot cards.The author has captured the "regulars" well, and the story moves along at a good pace. If you're a BTVS fan,then I'm sure you'll enjoy this particular book. The TV show is long gone (unless you have Netflix),so at least the fans will have the novels to read!

Another good novel based on the characters we know and love. I loved the story - although I think I might be avoiding my Tarot deck for a while - not that I'd ever want to use them to bring about the end of the world - well, not at the moment anyway! I really enjoyed it and it brightened up a couple of otherwise dull dinner breaks.

This book is more of a short story than novel. That being said, it is a good short story that takes place in the Buffyverse. The author did an excellent job portraying the characters of the tv show. I had no problems with this book and I could have pictured this being an episode of the show. If you like Buffy, read this short story.

Pretty goddamn terrible Buffy book! Buffy's stand out feature was always the truly wonderful dialogue and if you can't replicate it, you shouldn't even attempt a book. And what's with that ending?! A real let down.

Recommended to Katherine by: Mom got it @ a library booksale just b/c she thought of me when she saw it... not b/c she thoguht it would be a good book!
Entertaining enough to kill a couple hours on a 10 hour car trip. Really, what can one expect from a book based on a TV series?
